Stadiums don't last forever, dude. They've got to take them down at some point...
Do you realize that a huge chuck of cement fell off of the upper deck onto a seat in the lower deck a couple of years ago? If a game had been in progress at the time, at least one person would've been killed.
Huge? It wasn't huge. Whats your definition of huge? When I hear huge, I think a boulder. It probably could have killed someone, but it didn't. And its called repairs. Its a handy thing you can do to buildings to make them last for a real, real long time.
(Are you talking about Wrigley, which I'm aware of, or something at Yankee, which I'm not aware of with the concrete.)
I just think its sort of pathetic that they are going to rip down such a baseball monument, so they can have more luxury seats. Please don't tell me its for safety reasons. If it was safety reasons, they wouldn't be allowed to have fans there. Steinbrenner just wants to rake in more money than he already does by replacing the regular seats with luxury seats for his rich New York buddies.
